Athleisure Fabrics

Athleisure fabrics have a few key properties: they are breathable, they’re wrinkle-resistant, they dry quickly, and they have odor control. A good athleisure fabric is comfortable and stretchy and can be used in high-movement situations, like for workout wear, but still looks nice in any range of settings. Athleisure fabrics can look like athletic wear (similar to spandex fabrics) and be just as durable, but they typically have a higher quality of craftsmanship - think along the lines of high-end yoga pants and sets! Athleisure fabrics can be used in garments that require movement and being active but are just as at home grabbing coffee or going out to brunch.
